Research Reports Reprints

I recently obtained two article reprints from National Geographic Society Research Reports. These are the only reprints from this book series that I have ever come across. Are there other reprints from this series?See More

I sign the portuguese magazine, so I believe if the number is still available I can easly buy it for you. this is totaly independent of any other thing we can do together. it is easy and not a problem to me to help you. I will only charge what they charge me for the magazine and of corse shipping cost with out any handling cost.

for my side I need 11 numbers from 1900 till 1910 all for the year 1900, 1903 and 1904. do you any for sale or know who have?

best regards

How exactly could I help you?

Good morning,

I am trully sorry for giving you a false hope. Since many years I sign the magazine in portuguese, and every time I travel for some months, when I return if some magazine is not in great condition I call to the editor and ask them to send me a new one. 

Because of that I always new that they had old magazine for sale and was easy to resolve the problem. 

t happens one year ag they dicided to destroy all the old magazines they used to have and with out saying anything to any one.

I called them and there is no more magazines from the date you asked. 

I tried to see in palces where they sell old magazines and nathing. Not in the condition you and i collect.

I am trully sorry for giving you a false hope.

Best regards

Hi Richard,

Thanks for your message earlier this month. I'd love to do a short phone or email interview with you about your collecting of National Geographics. May I send you an email to tell you about the assignment in a little more detail? Thanks very much!
